COMLINK, a leading provider of network, voice and cloud services, recently partnered with data center operator Liberty Center One to construct three new data center fiber optic cable paths to Liberty Center One's Michigan data center.
The facility, located in Royal Oak, provides business clients with cloud and data transport services, which have been expanded due to the new fiber paths. The partnership with COMLINK will also enable Liberty Center One to support additional services for customers, including Ethernet, Optical Wave, SIP, conferencing, hosted VoIP and other voice offerings.
According to its website, COMLINK has recently been focused on growing its data center fiber optic cable network, which centers around the Michigan area and supports facilities in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Its current fiber optic network stretches more than 3,000 miles in these sectors.
Liberty Center One provides any size organization the space, power, networking and bandwidth they need, according to its website. Liberty Center One's offerings include colocation solutions as well as managed, virtual, dedicated and shared hosting services.
Liberty Center One CTO Pat Turner said the company is committed to creating an environment of continuous improvement for customers.
"COMLINK's introduction into our network portfolio provides us with another proven carrier to bolster our uptime guarantees to our customers," Turner said. "A significant factor in our decision was that COMLINK is actually building three independent fiber paths into our data center, and each traverse diverse routes back to three independent point-of-presence facilities."
Turner said the additional data center fiber optic cable paths will offer increased redundancy and reliability for customers, a valuable asset to Liberty Center One.
In addition to the three new fiber paths connected to the Michigan data center, COMLINK also recently acquired Michigan Lightwave's fiber network assets, further expanding the company's network.
